#### Students who needed French tutoring had to request an instructor from another town when the only French-speaking teacher in the small town passed away. Some people were angry with the new instructor because she used her monopoly in the field of tutoring French to increase her income on each French session she delivered. The new teacher charged substantially more per lesson than their town's previous teacher had. However, because it costs her more to travel between the two towns, her expenses are higher than they would have been if the new French instructor had been living in the town. As a result, she does not actually make more money on each class than she would have before. Which of the following is an underlying premise of the argument presented above?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Let's pinpoint the passage's key argument:

1. The French instructor costs more than her deceased predecessor. The French teacher must pay for transportation because she lives outside of town.
2. The teacher's fees are the only source of funding for transportation costs.
In summary, the French teacher isn't maximizing her monopoly to increase her income.

In order to reach the author's conclusion, Assumption E is actually a predicate that must be true. To reach the conclusion that the teacher is not abusing her monopoly, the author must presume that she is not receiving any additional compensation for her transportation costs on top of her fees. The supposition is thus accurate.
We may verify our response by applying the negative test:

1. The French instructor costs more than her deceased predecessor.
2. The French instructor must pay for transportation because she lives outside the city.
3. The teacher's salary DOES NOT entirely cover the cost of transportation. OR: Despite charging exorbitant rates, the teacher is reimbursed for her commuting costs.

In summary, the French teacher isn't maximizing her monopoly to increase her income.

Because it invalidates the conclusion when applied in its negative form, the negative test shows us that the assumption is accurate.
